The New Spam

I am currently in Dallas doing some training, and on my lunch break I decided to check out my Facebook profile and see what’s new.

Sitting in my “Requests” area are five group invitations… invitations to things like “if X many people join this group, I’ll do Y”.  It is a very definite reminder of spam emails like “if you don’t send this email to X many people, Y will happen!!”.

The worst part about this is that only friends can invite you, so these are the people that I know, or once knew.  In fact, mostly it’s people who I’m not really close to anymore.  I guess the people who I’m closest with know about my lack of patience with such types of spam.

So, look out Facebook users.  The next generation of spam – the “Social Spam” if you will – is upon us and growing.

Long lost update

So I’ve let my blog go for a bit, and I can’t promise that you’ll be seeing regular updates, but I did feel I should share what I’ve been doing with my time.

I am back to the world of in-house SEO. About six weeks ago, I accepted a job with WestJet Airlines. I am now working within the Web Business team, focusing on the stats and analytics for and its family of sites. I will also be heading the search engine optimization for WestJet’s sites as well, as a secondary project. I am very excited about my new position, and what I can do for Canada’s top low-cost carrier.

As I am required to be in Calgary, Alberta most of the week, I am currently not accepting new clients through Lyndseo.  Should you have any questions about our services, or a simple question about SEO, please feel free to contact me.  When I begin taking on more contracts, I will be sure to advise you.
